Let your imagination run wild as you capture fantastic and unique photos, customising them into wacky works of art.

And if you’re someone who likes being the centre of attention, try out the self-timer mode for self-portraits. When you’re happy with your creations, you can share them with your friends wirelessly.
Budding geographers also have a chance to learn under a great professor in Topoloco– crazy about topography , available on Nintendo DSiWare.

Also on Nintendo DSiWare, retro lovers are in for a treat with the launch of 99Seconds , the time-defying follow-up to 99Bullets. Control V-99 and take on the mysterious and deadly Black Vectors, in this title offering classic arcade mobility.
From avoiding Black Vectors, now it’s time to dodge out of the way of cars, in an updated version of the classic title Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition , available on the Wii Shop Channel. To celebrate the original game’s 30th year, the new game provides a wide range of entertaining new game modes including Tile Capture, Battle Royale, Freak Out and more that expand the challenge of Frogger's classic run-and-dodge gameplay.
